    This is precisely my point. Many progressive creationist scenarios have no
    way of being tested scientifically. As Howard points out, the number of
    scenarios that can be posited are unlimited. Such a position could be held
    regardless of the detail of our scientific knowledge. As such, support for
    such a position must be argued on other grounds. That is why many of us on
    this list have stressed that theological issues must be faced squarely and

    If someone is to claim that science provides a warrant for their
    interventionist view then they must provide a rigorous justification for
    such intervention including specifying precisely at which point such
    intervention is believed to have occurred.
